While the labeling for these shows is still a little shaky, both deadlists and setlists list this setlist at the electric set of the early show. I believe this is the only one available on the archives.

The four-star rating here is due to the cut in Cosmic Charlie - man, what a painful thing that is, especially after listening to that famous old tune glide so coolly on the heels of a truly :::::incredible::::: Other One suite - I think this muffled old aud brings the essence of the performance out better than a sbd could. 'Course, I'm no hypocrite and would probably salivate like anyone else if a board actually did emerge from this legendary show. Still, given the familiarity I have with this intimate auds from 6/24, I'll come back to this *any* time.

Good Lovin' is rockin-hot as well; fit this set after your NRPS early set (see ID#:23062); the last few tunes here make actually a better source for the late show acoustic set than ID#:7476, and you can piece together the rest of the late show from the various remaining splinters on the archive.

After a few seconds' listening, you'll decide if these myriad 6/24/70 AUDs are for you or not; for me, it's a most-delicate treasure. That Cosmic Charlie will likely be forever diced. I'm amazed we have as much here as we do.

the boys are really kicking some ass here..playing very tight..great vibe in this show you can feel it from the crowd as well..THERE ARE SEVERAL WOW MOMENTS...would give it 5 stars but have to make it 4 for lower grade taping and some song cuts.....

I was at this concert. Workingman's Dead had just come out. We were listening to it constantly. We had tickets to both shows for June 24. I remember the pyrotecnics right after the band was introduced, and bam, into Casey Jones! Three sets, the middle being the acoustic set with the New Riders. Great show in every way. New and old songs. Electric and acoustic.

Then we all had to leave the theatre and wait to re-enter for the second show. But we were smoking a joint on the sidewalk and my friend got busted. I had to go find his mother in NYC to bail him out and missed the second show.

OK, this is not the same Other One as the one that circulates as 6/24 early -- the one that begins with Alligator and segueways into Attics -- which is equally ferocious but much shorter.

This set must also be from Portchester -- the sound is identical. The sound of the drums is unmistakable.

This is a phenomenal, first-rate, Other One.

I remember, way back, that the June Portchester run included two nights: 6/24 and 6/25.

Is it possible that this is the case?
We clearly have 3 sets that sound like they are from this venue and time.

What a shame this period, summer thru late 1970, is mostly absent from the Vault...

Long live Portchester.

High rating is for performance. SQ reduces it to a 4-star.
